Nintendo has released this week's list of new digital content for the American eShop stores on Wii U and 3DS.


The digital version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf is this week's headliner. In our Animal Crossing: New Leaf review we said the game is "an essential purchase for 3DS owners needing to unwind" and "a game you'll always make sure to have on you".

You can check out the Animal Crossing: New Leaf launch trailer through here.

Here's this week's full official list:

Virtual Console on Wii U

Yoshi - Originally released on the Game Boy system in 1992, Yoshi is an action/puzzle game starring Mario and Yoshi. Yoshi has been trapped in an egg, and it's up to Mario to save his friend, while also stopping an airborne invasion of enemies. As the Goombas, Bloopers and Boo Buddies fall from the sky, Mario must catch them on trays and stack pairs of two of a kind before the piles get too high. Match multiple pairs, raise your score and help Yoshi escape. Available to download on June 12, Yoshi is the sixth game released on the Virtual Console for the Wii U system to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Famicom. For a limited time, the game will be available for only 30 cents.

Spelunker - Spelunker is the weakest action hero in the history of video games whose colossal spirit for adventure is countered only by his miniscule threshold for pain. Wander through miles of uncharted caves in search of the legendary underground pyramid and its vast treasures. But beware of the scalding steam vents, poisonous bats and the avenging spirits of dead spelunkers that lurk in every corner of this massive underground labyrinth.
